A great friend gifted me some Zoya polishes long time ago.

I already reviewed Zoya in Beatrix (right) and Zoya in Stevie (left). For this post, I will review Tinsley in the middle.
This is Zoya in Tinsley. Since I did a thorough review of Zoya in Aurora, I will base this on that.
Here's a closer look at the color. The website described it "as a full-coverage, rose gold foil metallic." I do agree with the description.
Here's a closer look at the brush. Compared to my favorite OPI brush, the length is shorter and the width is thinner. I would consider the width on the thin side.
I applied OPI Nail Envy in Original, Seche Clear Crystal Clear Base Coat, 2 coats of Zoya in Tinsley, and then topped it off with CND Vinylux Weekly Top Coat.

Now for my overall opinion... First of all, the brush is on the thin side. Since it has so much sparkles and shine, it's hard to see how I'm painting around the cuticles. It can be a pro or con depending on how you see it. I actually think it's a pro. It covers all the mistakes and hides from the human eyes. With that said, the thin brush didn't make a difference when it came to painting the nails. It was pretty quick since I didn't have to be careful around the cuticles. Secondly, the consistency is on the medium. Since it doesn't dry that quickly, I took my time painting the nails. It went on smoothly, and there was no streaking and bubbles. Third, the color is pretty if you're into sparkly metallic nails. If you're not, this isn't for you. You can wear this all year long but I prefer it for summer and fall season. With that said, there's a lot of sparkles. It's sparkling not in the glitter sense. It's just shiny. I'm not a fan of glitter polishes. They're chunky on the nails and hard to remove. This isn't. The sparkles are tiny to the point you cannot feel it. It bends in with the color and it's easy to remove. Lastly, I noticed slight shrinkage on the third day. Since there's so much shine, no one can notice with the human eye. I had to examine it closely to notice the tip has shrunk a bit. On the fifth day, I noticed a huge chip on one nail. Other than that, there were no other chips on the tips. Again, it's not that noticeable with the human eye.

Would repurchase: Maybe.
